The Two Man Gentlemen Band.

The Two Man Gentleman Band performed at Redlight Redlight. Dina Peterson suggested I sketch these two, and I am glad she did. The bar and tables were packed. I searched for a seat to sketch from, but I couldn't find a good view. I decided to sit on the floor right in front of the stage leaning against a metal pole. Being right at the performers feet gave me a forced perspective view of the performers.These two had a fun vaudeville type act. The music was fast paced and energetic harkening back to simpler times. An odd painting hung on the wall be hind the gentlemen of a person trying to swallow a whole pig.

When their set was over I found Dina who was ready to go. This was my second sketch of the evening, so I decided to walk out with her. It is rare for me to sketch at Redlight Redlight without trying at least one new beer. I usually pick a beer to taste based on how much I like the design of the label. I should take notes so that over time I can define and delicately refine my tastes. I don't recommend that Rasputin beer however. It will sneak up on you with a wallop.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
